Everybody’s Scalin’ G6 Event

Last Sunday I attended a G6 event that the Martucky Rc crew put on in Marseilles Illinois. I have done competitions before but I have to say, G6 comps are my favorite. Unlike regular crawler comps, a G6 is more spread out, more like a trail run. The boys from the Martucky crew did a fantastic job setting up the [...]

Joining a RC club can make your RC experience 100 times better. Just like anything, when you get together with a group of people who all share common interest it’s a lot of fun.

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – OPEN SEASON!

A lot of work went into opening day; three months of planning and a month of backbreaking labor. Every rock, scale building, and obstacles carefully placed.

Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Bad Apple

Every club has them. You know. The guy that either is at best annoying yet tolerable; at worst can ruin your group completely. These people are a cancer. The r/c world has largely stereotyped this character as the long standing, insufferable racer. And while it’s true that I’ve dealt with many a racer like this, it’s more the case that ANY [...]
